Easy Star All Stars: Dub Side of the Moon 10th Anniversary Show
WEDNESDAY 6TH AUGUST 2014
Blending musical versatility, instrumental prowess, beautiful vocal harmonies and a premier rhythm section, the Easy Star All-Stars have established themselves as one of the top international reggae acts on the scene today. Thanks to their best-selling tribute album releases, Dub Side of the Moon (2003), Radiodread (2006), and Easy Star’s Lonely Hearts Dub Band (2009), the remix album Dubber Side of the Moon (2010), as well as original releases Until That Day EP (2008) and First Light (2011), the Easy Star All-Stars have built a growing, dedicated fan base throughout the world, bringing together fans of reggae, classic rock, dub and indie rock into one big family.
The band has toured in over 30 countries on 6 continents, averaging over 100 shows per year for the past 5 years. They’ve played most of the major festivals throughout the world, including an unprecedented three-day, three-stage stand at Glastonbury in 2009, which earned them a UK Festival Award Nomination that year. The band has been celebrating the 10th anniversary of the release of Dub Side of the Moon playing many of the tracks from the album plus other live favourites.
8-piece UK outfit Backbeat Sound System are a band laden with groove, their uptempo songcraft drawing from funk, ska, reggae, pop, and dub. These combine in creation of a tight, uplifting, sun-clasped sound- seemingly designed for festival fields and hazy, elated dancing.
